I like it, but how does it move?

So, do the counters look better with a "paint job" or as a solid black silhouette?

They look really cool with the paint jobs Dan. But I think legibility-wise the black silhouette is easier to register.

I'm thinking a full color 3D illustration for the book, Black(gray, white - maybe faction-based coloring) Silhouettes for the counters.

Yeah...that's probably the way to go, though only those that print out the pdf on their own are going to get the benefit of color unless the hardcopy is printed in such.

I like the paint jobs but it's a close call... and I think more players would prefer the clean black silhouette.

Before casting your vote re: painted or silhouette, you might want to see something more impressive than my little doodle...

Gotta admit those look pretty snazzy. Problem is that the color palette for the tank and the counter are too similar, so the tank started to get lost IMO. Not that it doesn't look nice. It's merely an issue of clarity.

My question is "Is this beautiful enough Jim?"
:)


I can make the counter art in more contrasting colors, it that's the problem. I like the way Dan's done up the counters here, a bit nicer than the silhouettes.
